This Open Thread is Staying Right Here on Earth

I somehow just saw this video from last August of Neil deGrasse Tyson explaining how long you could survive on the surface of each planet without life support, and it’s a delight. I don’t even want to admit how hard I laughed at his awful “old astronomy joke.” 

What’s your favorite terrible joke? Make us groan in the comments!

Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.
